Mipits moving well, high WSW tonight with 51 counted in the hour watch. Best evening count so far this autumn with eight being the largest group. Otherwise nothing much of note except that House Martins in the sky from the local colony have reduced to c12 max. A wonderfull sunset well before 2000hr but no time to photograph tonight.
